Tiffen Polarizer Filter (MX5000)

I like it~! It really increased color saturation.

Did you use a circular or a linear polarizer?

It's a linear polarizer (for a video camera). Why?

Just curious to see what people use in way of a polarizer. The cam shops here are still pushing circulars, telling their customers the linear won't work.

Nice shots, Young.

For video, it doesn't matter if the polarizer is linear or circular. Circulars are needed on SLR still cameras because of the mirror and the effects on TTL metering.

You mean I should be using a circular on my FM2T SLR because of the mirror?

Thanks, Guy. But my camera being a totally manual SLR, there is only 1 mirror which flips out of the way when the shutter is activated via the "clicker." The metering is TTL. Plus I mainly use high latitute film (Konica VX200, Iford Delta 400), very forgiving when it comes to exposure.
